Maybe I'm the odd guy out here but I can't see the current Camaro getting anLS7 option. That is an expensive engine.

How much more does a LS7 cost over a LS3?

The LS7 is probably 2x the price but primarily because it is hand built. They could do a mas produced version and it would only be marginally more expensive.

I'd say it is $7k more just looking at Crate engine prices.

I could live with that. Chevy could easily do a 1le ls7 for under $45k.

I think there is more to it than just cost / price.

I bet they'll just call it "Camaro 427" edition just like they did for the corvette convertible with the 7.0 LS7. So they can save the Z/28 name for the next gen Camaro.

I think all of the 1LE buyers have gotten the shaft. Because of this unfortunate mess you have gotten yourself into, I will be nice and buy your 1LE for half of the price you bought it for. That way you can walk away from this disaster with something to show for.

Me too. No Z28 or twin turbo v6 for the 5th gen.

And you'd be wrong.

The ZL1 is not a Z28, why? A Z28 will be NA.
The 1LE is not a Z28, why? It is missing some ingredients, i.e. high revving track designed engine...

The 1LE is close. Add an engine that loves to rev keeping it in the power band longer and rocketing it out of the turns faster and then see where the VIR lap time ends up.

I guess I don't know if the moon landing was staged either. All I'm saying is right now the LS7 Camaro is rumor, the same way the Z/28 has been for four years. It's fun to speculate though.

But anyone who thinks driving a 426HP, great looking, practical car that handles like the 1LE for less than $37K is getting the shaft just needs to have their head examined...

Never gonna happen. The LS7 is twice the price of an LS3. If an LS7 is optioned you can bet it will cost what a ZL1 costs. I doubt you will be able to get a 1SS and add the LS7. We can't order a 1SS with the LSA. If there is an LS7 it will be priced with the ZL1 and it will be just a hard to get one (ie. no price reduction)
